Automakers are forever striving to outdo themselves when it comes to elements of a vehicle’s design or performance. One of the flashiest areas to improve is in the speed category. Though the cars on this list might not be the fastest ones ever to exist, these are the fastest street-legal vehicles that anyone can own. Why you would ever need to go this fast outside of a race course is a question for another time and place. Check out some of the most mind-blowing (or rather, hair-blowing) fast cars on the road today.
10. Pagani Huayra
The super sleek Pagani Huayra, with its signature leaf-shaped, antennae-like side view mirrors and the streamlined body was the successor to the incredibly fast Zonda and was named for a Quechua wind god. There’s no wonder in the name – the Huayra has a top speed of 230 miles per hour. The Huayra, offered by Italian automaker Pagani, was named The Hypercar of the Year 2012 by Top Gear magazine. Even at more than $1.3 million, as of February of 2015, the Huayra was completely sold out of its limited 100-unit run, as per an agreement with Pagani’s engine supplier Mercedes-AMG.
